worried my teenage daughter having problems
Hello everyone. I use the boards alot but this is a new one for me. I have a 16yr old who has been experiancing alot of problems on & off. It seems for the most part to be triggered by physical activity. Took her in when she was in grade school with chest pain, said it was growing pains. Then again when she attempted soccer a couple yrs ago & doctor thought she was suffering hypotension. Now shes in cheerleading & same things occuring. Chest pain, short of breathe, heart palpatations (sp?), pain going down the left arm, dizziness. Now its waking her up in her sleep. We have Arterial Septal defect in our family & have had 2 neices diagnosed with this in their teens, one while running track passed out cold. Both ended up with surgery.
Im calling her doctor today as this has me concerned more then I can say & of course she is scared. It seems to be occuring more & more since she joined cheerleading. She had the 24hr moniter on in the past & an EKG & If I remember correctly an echocardiagram, but nothing showed.
Anyone here with ASD? As
a mom this has me worried sick. Please share any knowledge you may have. Thanks for taking the time to read this & god bless, Sammy
